Hinton's mobility is an asset as it allows him to move easily in the pocket and evade the pass rush. He's an accurate passer, and his accuracy only increases when he takes his time and plants his feet. He also shows very nice touch on the deep ball. He's an ideal fit in a spread offense, which is what he would be running at Wake Forest.

Kendall holds offers from Wake Forest, North Carolina State, Duke, Boston College and East Carolina. You can follow Kendall on Twitter  @Kendall_Hinton3.
